Think of a really good story. You know, the kind of story that makes you want to jump up on the couch and give a standing ovation. The kind of story that reminds you, even for a brief moment, what life is all about and that love always wins. I love story because after witnessing a really good one, it has the ability to change everything. It can change the way you see and hear and feel and as a consequence change the way you live.
The most beautiful moments are never spent alone, they are always shared in some way. That’s why weddings are done with loved ones and the Happy Birthday song only sounds good as part of choir. Community has the ability to take a terrible day and make it good with hugs and heartfelt words. We need each other and that is why I love living in community.
Everyone has been created on purpose and for a purpose. But somewhere along the way a lot of us get confused and forget why we are here. That is why I love empowerment, I love when identity is spoken over people and people are encouraged to be themselves. When people have the courage to live out their wild and precious life in a way that glorifies God, that is empowerment.
There is something about getting lost in a foreign place that awakens your heart in a way that nothing else can. Each smell, sight and sound reminds you that you are on an adventure, a pioneer on your own journey. A journey that is full of new faces who remind you that your life is really isn’t about you, it’s about them. It’s about God and His great love for his people.
Mothers, none of us would be here without them, they hold up about half of sky and can make you feel loved with a simple gesture. Their hugs chase away pain and their words are full of wisdom. Mothers should be celebrated and are among the loveliest of things.
